With the sell-out of this event, we're repeating the event on the 4th of February! CLICK HERE to book.
Our philosophy here at the Spirit of Yorkshire is all about respecting tradition but doing things our own way.
Team member, Libby grew up in Scotland and for her and her family, Burns Night (celebrating the poet Robert Burns) is an important annual event. Whisky and Burns Night go hand in hand, and she combines Yorkshire and Scottish heritage so... why not do a Burns Night with a Spirit of Yorkshire twist?
After the sell-out events in 2019 and 2020, we're doing it again in 2022. Keeping many of the Scottish Burns Night traditions alive but introducing some special North and East Yorkshire elements too!
Join us for an evening of whisky, poetry and haggis. Each ticket includes a 2-course meal, a Burns supper with a Yorkshire twist followed by a traditional dessert.
Drinks-wise we’ll start off the night with a whisky cocktail, and five great drams will be poured throughout the evening. Beer and wine will also be available on the night with an extra charge.
All tickets are e-tickets, the confirmation email will act as your ticket.
Please let us know any dietary requirements in advance.

But who was Robert Burns and what is Burns Night?
Burns fame has surged in recent years making more Burns Nights than ever taking place all over the world. But it wasn’t just his linguistic skills that have written Burns into the pages of human history. His story is one of a true underdog, rising from an impoverished, bleak childhood in rural Scotland to the highest circles of society in his time. In true ‘rock star’ fashion burning out and dying young. Living life hard and fast like many of the greats, like a 15th century Elvis Presley.
Aside from poetry; Burns is perhaps best known for his love of whisky and a good old knees-up! As any good Burns historian will tell you he was far from shy when it came to having a drink and a good time. When you strip out the formality, this is what all good Burns nights are about, simply having fun with family, friends and a nice bottle (or two) of whisky.
Burns nights come in all manner of forms from big formal dinners with vociferous toasts right down to just a couple of friends cracking a bottle of something tasty and enjoying each others company. This Burns night, we'll be striking a balance. A respectful nod to the amiable bard, but with the focus on the tasting of amazing whisky and the eating of delicious food, complemented by a light dusting of his less serious pieces.
